A St. George high school student is one of 12 FFA and 4-H members that the White House is honoring as a Champion of Change.

Kaydn Ence is being recognized in an event Tuesday morning for his work to make his community a better place.

White House officials say Ence took action when he found a company wasn't going to expand operations in his hometown because of a lack of technological training in the community.

Officials say Ence responded by setting up 4-H robotics clubs across his county and fundraising to buy robotics kits for the groups.

In the first year, Ence has organized nine robotics clubs with more than 100 total members as a way to better prepare teens for careers in computer programming, engineering, and technology. —
